Also joining them on stage was most recent member, Steve Jordan, 64, who replaced the late drummer Charlie Watts on the tour.
The Rolling Stones kicked off their North American tour last month, but the Sympathy for the Devil hitmaker admitted he and his bandmates are still not used to being on stage without the late drummer.
Mick told SiriusXM DJ Howard Stern: ‘Every time we get together now and rehearse, we say, “Oh, Charlie would say this, then he would do that.”

An official cause of death has not been revealed but he suffered from a series of health problems in recent years, including a diagnosis of throat cancer in 2004.
According to Noise11 the band played the extremely rare track, She’s A Rainbow in only its 20th live performance in over 50 years of its release as fans have recently been able to vote on setlist choices.
They might have firmly established their place as one of the most influential bands of all time, but the band are not immune to controversy today.
Setlist: The crowd saw them play a 19 song setlist including rare hit She’s A Rainbow
Despite fan outrage, the hit track, Brown Sugar was still absent from the set list after it came under fire over its depiction of slavery and sexual violence last month.
The song was axed from the 13-date US tour over fears the British rockers would be ‘cancelled’ by woke music fans who take issue with lyrics like the opening lines: ‘Gold Coast slave ship bound for cotton fields / Sold in the market down in New Orleans / Skydog slaver knows he’s doin’ all right / Hear him whip the women just around midnight.’
Confirming its removal from this setlist in an interview with the Los Angeles Times, Keith Richards said the band did not want to get into ‘conflicts’ over the song.

But furious Rolling Stones fans said they don’t understand the controversy surrounding the track as it is clearly anti-slavery, with many saying artists should be free to express themselves without fearing ‘cancel culture’.
Mick, when asked about the song’s absence from their recent set lists, told The Los Angeles Times they had decided to give the song a break.
He said: ‘We’ve played ‘Brown Sugar’ every night since 1970, so sometimes you think, We’ll take that one out for now and see how it goes. We might put it back in.’
Controversy: Keith when asked about controversial track Brown Sugar said: ‘I’m hoping that we’ll be able to resurrect the babe in her glory’
Speaking about the song’s meaning, Keith added that he was trying to figure out where the problem was:
‘Didn’t they understand this was a song about the horrors of slavery? But they’re trying to bury it. At the moment I don’t want to get into conflicts with all of this s***.
‘But I’m hoping that we’ll be able to resurrect the babe in her glory somewhere along the track.’
